Look at all these happy pups! LOOK AT THEM! It just makes me happy to look at those happy faces.
Designer David McCandless made this neat matrix mapping dog breeds according to factors like popularity, intelligence, longevity, or cost. Poor bulldog.
Voice actor Rudi Rok can do a pitch-perfect dog impersonation. Watch him interacting with actual dogs in this interesting video experiment. I really really wish science came up with a working human-dog-human translator.
Pig—the name of this Akita mutt—is not one of those ridiculous photoshops of animals with short necks. She was born like this in the woods northeast of Atlanta. Nobody gave a damn for her life except her owner, Kim Dillenbeck: "The lady who found her, the vet told her to have her put down."
I'm all for people risking their lives and getting a thrill out of jumping from anywhere in the world. But I'm not a fan of people who get their dog along for the ride. As fun as it may look, I'm pretty sure the dog—who doesn't understand what the hell is going on—is not a fan of it either, even while he looks calm.
Sometimes when you have a lot of dogs, they don't all get the exercise they need. Not these dogs though, they get to use these sweet dog treadmills at their outdoor dog gym. So even though there's a lot of dogs, they all get to be active. Well, most of them. The dog on the left is just out for a relaxing stroll.
We love dogs, but we love war dogs even more because apart from being loyal and cute, they can be absolutely badass. We are so obsessed with these awesome canines that we made a collection of the 30 best photos we could find all over the web. Enjoy.
Three well-trained dogs wait patiently for the go ahead signal as their owner lays out delicious grilled hot dogs in front of them. Then she gives the signal to go ahead—but the chihuahua steals all of the food before the pit bulls react. Is the chihuahua a jerk or is it all a well-rehearsed trick?
A BBC story reveals the secret to winning at rock-paper-scissors. The answer is something that we dog trainers tell our human clients all the time: if something works, an animal is going to do it again.
I will not spoil the ending of this Russian dashcam video, so you have to watch the entire video till the very end. Trust me, you will really enjoy this—a lot.
This is Max the dog and his human mom Maureen. An amazing BBC Earth report tells their story: Max became depressed when he started to smell the cancer that Maureen was developing inside her breast. It's a really incredible tale.
Technology is great but, when it comes to awesome, nothing can beat nature. Just look at Duncan Lou Who, the famous boxer who got his two back legs amputated because of a genetic malformation. He learned to walk with his two arms—and this video shows he's now running faster than ever.
Oh, spring. So many flowers to smell, so many butts to sniff. When it starts to be pretty out, you might find yourself falling in love all over again...with your pup. If you'd like to empty your pockets in order to express your devotion, here are some products that will please both dogs and their devoted humans.
Second only to the pain of your bare foot finding a tiny piece of Lego, is stepping onto an abandoned rawhide bone. It's a harsh reminder that your dog has no interest in cleaning up after itself, but with this treat-dispensing toy box, that doesn't have to be the case.
Dogs can be incredibly smart but—when it comes to trusting humans—they are as naive as a little kid who doesn't know what a lie means yet. Watching these dogs getting completely confused when magician Jose Ahonen mades a treat disappear right in front of their eyes (and noses) makes me laugh and awwww at the same time.
You know what's almost as cute as a dog puppy? An otter puppy. Here, a tiny otter cries for his mom. And then she comes and snuggles with him.
In addition to providing exercise and a chance to pee and poop, walks are full of opportunities for your dog to learn about the world and develop good behaviors. An enriching walk will also help tire out a dog out both mentally and physically, which can result in better behavior during the inside portions of the day.…
Scientists at the University of Life Sciences in Prague have found that dogs are sensitive to Earth's magnetism. In fact, they're so sensitive that they poop aligned to the planet's magnetic field. I don't know what that means or why is it useful, but I find it fascinating.
This Christmas, my lucky friends are going to get printouts of original digital art. Made by my dog.
